Full description
After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 30-minute transfer to the base of the hiking trail, including driving the world's longest undersea road tunnel. Upon arrival, receive a short briefing, then embark on your journey to Preikestolen.  Begin your outdoor adventure in darkness, hiking with headlamps on trails that have recently been upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas. Hiking in the hushed silence of night is in itself an experience. Though animals are shy around people, it’s a certainty that they’ll be awake and alert, observing you from behind the old trees and scattered boulders that surround the trail. While the wildlife watches, your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain, which includes bogs, forests, and glacier-scoured mountains. After approximately 2.5 hours of hiking, reach the Preikestolen plateau just before sunrise. After finding yourself a comfortable place to relax, watch as the first beams of sunlight climb over the horizon and illuminate the Lysefjord’s steep mountain walls. Take plenty of time for photos and enjoy a warm beverage and snack atop Preikestolen. Long before the first tourist-packed busses arrive from Stavanger, you’ll be on your way back down the trail to conclude your unique hiking adventure with a well-deserved breakfast or lunch at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which is located at the base of the hiking trail.

Very good information, very good care, great experience.

I was picked up, the trip and the ascent were well planned. It rained heavily throughout the ascent. When the Preikestolen arrived, the rain eased and the sky broke open just in time for sunrise. A great moment. My guide was very friendly, competent and in a good mood. I recommend the tour, but also: pay attention to the equipment instructions of the organizer.
